Blog Tour Review - Service Model by Adrian Tchaikovsky

Blog Tour Review - Service Model by Adrian Tchaikovsky To fix the world they first must break it further. Humanity is a dying breed, utterly reliant on artificial labor and service. When a domesticated robot gets a nasty little idea downloaded into their core programming, they murder their owner. The robot then discovers they can also do something else they never did before: run away. After fleeing the household, they enter a wider world they never knew existed, where the age-old hierarchy of humans at the top is disintegrating, and a robot ecosystem devoted to human wellbeing is finding a new purpose.

Your Ideal Book Panels

I had a really interesting conversation on Twitter the other day that I thought deserved to be written up into a blog post.

It wasn't some heavy discussion piece, it was more of a light hearted fantasy panel game.

It started with this tweet from @JessHeartBooks

So I opened the question up to the rest of my followers, and got some more great ideas for panels!

 What was really interesting though was how many of the authors came back with responses about how much they'd like to do it.

My own dream panel?

Jess came back with a really interesting response.

 You know what? I think she might be on to something there!

So what about you? Who would be on your dream author panel, and would you host it yourself?
Should we look at having a book blogger run convention? Maybe in the north east of England?
